Nursing - Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
Doctor of Nursing Practice
Students pursuing the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) specialization receive a broad foundation of educational preparation in advanced nursing practice with children.
The Doctor of Nursing Practice program is a hybrid program utilizing a mixture of online didactic coursework, on-campus intensives, and on-ground practicum and clinical placements. It is a practice-focused doctoral program emphasizing innovative, evidence-based professional practice and reflecting the application and implementation of credible research findings. The PNP specialization is intended for registered nurses with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or a Master of Science in Nursing.
The College of Nursing offers full-time and part-time options for DNP students. Part-time students must be enrolled in at least 6 units per semester. Part-time study is only available during the pre-clinical portion of the program and adds a year to the degree completion timeline.
